Overview

A passionate artist, a handsome firefighter, can the sex get any hotter?

Artist Rodney Mansfield is small and flamboyant...and a black belt in karate. Too bad the work of art he really wants is firefighter Hunter Fallon. The gorgeous "straight gay" guy could never want the Runtback of Notre Dame, so when Rodney's handsome surfer friend develops an unexpected passion for the beautiful firefighter, Rodney does what's best for everyone and helps Jerry land his man. And if that wasn't enough to kill his chances, embarrassing Hunter by rescuing him from a firehouse bully seals the deal.

Hunter hates gay guys like Rodney...doesn't he? Then why can't he get his mind off the powerful pipsqueak's face...and hands off his body? Isn't it time for him to admit he's not such an alpha male after all, and that he's the property of the artist?

Meet the Author

Tara Lain never met a beautiful boy she didn’t love--at least on paper. A writer of erotic romance, mostly ménage and male/male, Tara loves all her characters, but especially her handsome heroes. A lifelong writer of serious non-fiction, Tara only fell in love with EROM in 2009 and, through perseverance and lots of workshops, had the first novel she ever wrote published in January of 2011. After an exotic life of travel all over the world and work in television, education, and advertising, Tara settled in Southern California with her soul-mate husband and opened her own small marketing business. She paints, collages, and started practicing yoga "way before it was fashionable." Passionate about diversity, justice, inclusion, and new ideas, she says on her tombstone it will read, "Yes."

    Loved it. LOVED it! It’s emotional from the first page as Rodney is subject to his obsession with Hunter and purposely walks past the firehouse in hopes of just glimpsing him, and further as his buddy Jerry gets a gander at Hunter and seeks to land him with Rodney’s help.

    Hunter is a complex character himself, being the big tough firefighter and having to put up with crap from a jerk of a coworker. When Rodney ends up coming to his defense in public, it only serves to confuse and frustrate Hunter that much more. Their struggle with each other and a few outside factors is both heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time.

    As for the actual romance, smokin’ hot and incredibly sexy. They were a little reluctant at first, for reasons you’ll have to read to find out, but that only added to the steam. Truly a wonderful, enjoyable, touching, and satisfying story. If I wasn’t already a fan of Tara Lain, this would make me one.

    Highly Recommended

    Sweet, fun, light read. I read it in a night and frequently found that I was sitting there with a stupid sh*t-eating grin on my face. I was worried the flamboyant Rod with his "darling"s and "OMG"s would be hard to relate to, but I teared up when he finally let his emotions out with David. Who hasn't been in that horrible helpless position of unrequited love? And I loved that things were thoroughly wrapped up at the end where a lot of similar books would have ended a couple chapters earlier.

    What a delight to read my first Tara Lain novel: Fire Balls. It

    What a delight to read my first Tara Lain novel: Fire Balls. It was just right for a rainy day when I needed cheering up. And Tara’s writing voice does just that – it sings as clear as a bell with hardly a word to spare, leaving the reader (me) breathless as the plot romps along at an amazing pace. She says she loves beautiful boys (on a page) so she must be passionate about her main characters, Rodney and Hunter, because I am.
    Rodney is in danger of being the all-too clichéd “fey” gay character with his painted hair and hands on hips attitude. But under Tara’s supervision he becomes a fully-rounded, loveable character whose heart is larger than he is. So, says one of the story’s underlying messages, don’t judge anyone until you know him/her better.
    This short novel, which has an unpredictable ending, introduces such diverse subjects as karate, painting, the life of a fire-fighter - all in interesting and well-researched detail, and each weave perfectly into a passionate, funny and highly entertaining tale populated by characters that I’ll never forget. All I need to do now is get into another Tara Lain as soon as possible.

    Sweet and Hot at the same time

    i usually don't read much m/m romance but when i read the blurb for Fireballs i was intrigued. at the 1st page i could not put it down, i sympathized with all of the main characters and wanted to smack them at the same time. LOL! they all had their individual insecurities and that kept them apart for much of the book but they heat between them two heroes wouldn't allow them to stay apart either. when they finally came together as a couple it was very touching and poignant and just the right amount of sweet without being sappy or distacting from the masculinity of either of the heroes. Thank you Tara for writing such a wonderful story. I look forward to reading the other books in this series.
